Choose the mode of automation to match your harvesting goals. Then, set the crop type, maximum operating speed and power limits, and AFS Harvest Command takes over from there.
- Performance Mode: Achieve maximum grain savings and grain quality while optimizing throughput. This is the most common mode of automation, used when the harvest is progressing well, conditions are nearly ideal, no weather threats are looming.
- Grain Quality Mode: Achieve maximum grain quality in the tank while saving grain and optimizing throughput. This mode is designed for when your goal is to deliver the highest-quality grain possible and minimize cracked and broken kernels.
- Max Throughput Mode: Maximize throughput, save grain and maintain a quality sample. This mode is ideal for tight harvest windows and weather limitations to maximize the acres without sacrificing grain loss or quality.
- Fixed Throughput Mode: Fix the machine throughput, save grain and maintain a quality sample. This mode is ideal when you’re under limiting operating conditions (e.g. trucking schedules or drying limitations) to maintain a target throughput to match your infrastructure.
